Java Sound in JRE 1.5.4?

I recently installed the Java Run-time envir.. 1.5.4, for windows. Changing from the 1.5.3 version, but in the 1.5.3 version I could play .wav files, but now I cannot.
Would anyone know if the wav player has been taken out, and has to be installed separately?
Thank you

There is no JRE 1.5.4 and there never will be (Sun said there won't be 1.5.x releases with x>0). There is a JRE 1.5.0 Update 4 'though (or 1.5.0_04 in old-speak). I assume you're talking about that.
Is it possible that you installed some additional components inside your JRE-directory that didn't get migrated?

  • An I18N bug from java sound should be fixed.

    When you try to list some audio related names (such as mix name, port name, control name) by using java sound api, and if the names are writtened by non-ascii character such as Chinese, you will get the strange characters, that means java sound api does not support internationalization character. Here is the sample:

    Rebuild jdk source code as per sun build document. Got the result files and pick up jsound.dll, replace the original jsound.dll in your JRE with the fixed file.
    Then the problem solved. I also hope sun will fix the problem in the future version of JDK.
    Or any one can help me to submit this article to the sun JDK team.

  • Simple Java Sound Question...

    Can I draw waveforms while capturing data? If yes, how. If no, why.
    Thanks. I need the answer ASAP, please help.

    Hi nfactorial,
    Can I draw waveforms while capturing data?If you would like to do that in Java you would need to know about how to use the Java language in general and especially about the Java Sound and Java2D APIs.
    If yes, how.It would be too much to explain to answer such a general question. A general answer is, you need to use the Java Sound API to capture the data for which a waveform should be drawn. The Sound API delivers data as a stream of bytes typically encoded in pulse coded modulation (PCM) format. The data stream has digital samples each representing a level of sound pressure for a certain point in time. The stream of samples in the amplitude/time domain need to be transformed to a spectrum of samples in the amplitude/frequency domain, i.e. a number of PCM samples need to be mapped to the frequencies that should be displayed. This is done with the fast fourier transformation algorithm. Each set of amplitude/frequency values can then be displayed as a waveform by using some line drawing logic. The entire process would need to run constantly, i.e. as bytes are received from the sound data stream transformation and drawing is triggered.

  • Jar files download problems in Java Webstart with JRE 1.6

    We have encountered a few problems in Java Webstart with JRE 1.6
    In JRE 1.5, the jar files are getting downloaded onto the client
    machine with it's original names.
    Example :
    Server File Name : acm.jar
    Client File Name : RMacm.jar
    But in JRE 1.6, the jar files are getting downloaded with improper file names.
    Example :
    Server File Name : acm.jar
    Client File Name : 4fb074cc-66fc7407
    Moreover the path itself seems to be invalid.
    Example Path :
    JRE 1.5 path:
    C:\Documents and Settings\Administrator\Application
    JRE 1.6 path:
    C:\Documents and Settings\Administrator\Application
    Due to this, we are facing Classpath problems.
    What changes do we have to make to the code, for Java
    Webstart to work ?
    We are using JBoss 4.0.4 and JDK 1.5 in the Server

  • Question about Java Sound example?

    I found this example AudioPlayer, when searching for an example of how to play .wav files in Java.
    The code seems quite long, and wondered if anyone could advise if this is the best way to play a wav file?
    And could anyone explain if the EXTERNAL_BUFFER_SIZE should allows be set to 128000;
    Thank you

    import javax.sound.sampled.AudioInputStream;
    import javax.sound.sampled.AudioSystem;

    import javax.sound.sampled.SourceDataLine;
    public class SimpleAudioPlayer
         private static final int     EXTERNAL_BUFFER_SIZE = 128000;
         public static void main(String[] args)
                We check that there is exactely one command-line
                If not, we display the usage message and exit.
              if (args.length != 1)
                Now, that we're shure there is an argument, we
                take it as the filename of the soundfile
                we want to play.
              String     strFilename = args[0];
              File     soundFile = new File(strFilename);
                We have to read in the sound file.
              AudioInputStream     audioInputStream = null;
                   audioInputStream = AudioSystem.getAudioInputStream(soundFile);
              catch (Exception e)
                     In case of an exception, we dump the exception
                     including the stack trace to the console output.
                     Then, we exit the program.
                From the AudioInputStream, i.e. from the sound file,
                we fetch information about the format of the
                audio data.
                These information include the sampling frequency,
                the number of
                channels and the size of the samples.
                These information
                are needed to ask Java Sound for a suitable output line
                for this audio file.
              AudioFormat     audioFormat = audioInputStream.getFormat();
                Asking for a line is a rather tricky thing.
                We have to construct an Info object that specifies
                the desired properties for the line.
                First, we have to say which kind of line we want. The
                possibilities are: SourceDataLine (for playback), Clip
                (for repeated playback)     and TargetDataLine (for
                Here, we want to do normal playback, so we ask for
                a SourceDataLine.
                Then, we have to pass an AudioFormat object, so that
                the Line knows which format the data passed to it
                will have.
                Furthermore, we can give Java Sound a hint about how
                big the internal buffer for the line should be. This
                isn't used here, signaling that we
                don't care about the exact size. Java Sound will use
                some default value for the buffer size.
              SourceDataLine     line = null;
              DataLine.Info     info = new DataLine.Info(SourceDataLine.class,
                   line = (SourceDataLine) AudioSystem.getLine(info);
                     The line is there, but it is not yet ready to
                     receive audio data. We have to open the line.
              catch (LineUnavailableException e)
              catch (Exception e)
                Still not enough. The line now can receive data,
                but will not pass them on to the audio output device
                (which means to your sound card). This has to be
                Ok, finally the line is prepared. Now comes the real
                job: we have to write data to the line. We do this
                in a loop. First, we read data from the
                AudioInputStream to a buffer. Then, we write from
                this buffer to the Line. This is done until the end
                of the file is reached, which is detected by a
                return value of -1 from the read method of the
              int     nBytesRead = 0;
              byte[]     abData = new byte[EXTERNAL_BUFFER_SIZE];
              while (nBytesRead != -1)
                        nBytesRead =, 0, abData.length);
                   catch (IOException e)
                   if (nBytesRead >= 0)
                        int     nBytesWritten = line.write(abData, 0, nBytesRead);
                Wait until all data are played.
                This is only necessary because of the bug noted below.
                (If we do not wait, we would interrupt the playback by
                prematurely closing the line and exiting the VM.)
                Thanks to Margie Fitch for bringing me on the right
                path to this solution.
                All data are played. We can close the shop.
                There is a bug in the jdk1.3/1.4.
                It prevents correct termination of the VM.
                So we have to exit ourselves.

  • Using the 'java.sound.*' libraries and classes

    I am a complete noob to Java. So please forgive me if I seem a little stupid in the things I ask.
    I would like to know which development kit I should download to be able to gain access to the 'java.sound.*' and midi libraries and classes.
    I downloaded the Java SE 6 SDK but I could get access to these classes.
    I use JCreator as my compiler and I kept getting an error along the lines of 'java.sound.* package does not exist'. I have tried compiling the code with NetBeans and also wiuth Eclipse and I still have no luck and I get the same message. I am guessing the compiler is not the problem and it is the SDK as I can access other classes such as javax.swing and java.awt etc.
    If you could give me a link to the relevant SDK and maybe a good compiler, it would be greatly appreciated.
    Also I am using Windows XP and Windows Vista so if you could provide me with support for either of these operating systems then that would be great.
    Thank You

  • How to implement effects in java sound

    I have read the programmer's guide in java sound and it said there that it can generate effects such as distortion, delay and others. I would like to implement some of those, I can already capture and play sound from a microphone but I don't know how to manipulate the data to get my desired effect. Can someone explain the content of the array of bytes? I also hope you can give me some hints or anything that could help me implement my own effect. Thanks in advance!

    The contents of the double array do not exceed the range. They are mostly of -0.07 o 0.07.
    I forgot to post this code, this is how byte was transformed to a double array. I am just extending an existing codeAh, yes...that makes a lot more sense. I assumed you were reading from the line as double, and that wouldn't work. But you're already converting it, which is why everything stays in the range you'd expect.
    "Weirdness" solved.
    If I use the double array or the byte array, how can I implement some effects like echo or reverb? I understand that since the "raw data" provides amplitude, I can get it's frequency and there is some FFT involved. All I can see here is determining the pitch of the sound but still, no effects. I'm still confused on where to start. Well, it depends on the effect. I'm not an effects expert, so you'll probably want to go do some Google-ing for what all of the affects are...but I think I can explain an echo.
    Echo is a function of a variable, decay, which is how quickly an echo will fade away. From a physics perspective, think of decay as friction, it'll eventually stop a moving object.
    So, you might implement an echo kinda like the following
    for (int i = 0; i < buffer.length; i++) {
         double threshhold = 0.01;
         double decay = 0.5;
         double echo = sample;
         int j = i+1;
         while((Math.abs(echo) > threshhold) && (j < buffer.length)) {
              buffer[j++] += echo;
              echo *= decay;
    Where some decreasing-fraction of a sample is added to all samples in the future until it drops below some threshhold.
    That may or may not be an "echo" effect, necessarily, as I think that a "true" echo also has a peroid (the delay between the sound and its echo) that I'm not taking into effect, so that effect is probably more like overdrive...but it illistrates the point. You'll have to figure out what each effect "adds" or "subtracts" from the sound, and then loop-through the sound data sequentially adding the effects of the effect.

    Hi All,
    I'm curious to view the Java Sound source code, is that possible? Let me know what I have done so far,
    1. In eclipse I have mapped the from the JDK directory, now I am able to view most of the source code.
    2. When I try to view AudioSystem.getProviders method it returns value from JDK13Services.getProviders
    But I dont have source code for JDK13Services class, indeed i don't have package source code, in the
    Do anyone know how to get package source code?
    Thanks in advance,

    It appears that the 3rd entry of this search
    give both the javadoc and source for JDK13Services, as follows:
    The other search listings appear to contain useful information, also.

    I want to know where i can download a ebook on java sound.


  • Cannot recognise any sound devices in Linux using Java sound!

    Hi there - I'm new to Java sound, and can't even get my foot in the door on my Linux system. Even thought my speakers and microphone are fully functional on my system (I can record, playback, etc. using other programs) I cannot get Java to find the microphone, speaker, anything. I've tried calling "AudioSystem.isLineSupported(Port.Info.MICROPHONE)", which returns false, as with all the other Port.Info.... objects.
    I'm sure there are no programs using my audio devices (used lsof | grep snd and lsof | grep dsp, then killed the only program that had anything open) and I've tried running my Java program as the super-user too, but to no avail.
    One thing I CAN do is get sound from /dev/dsp - I can put this into a byte array and play it back later, but I don't know how to find out what sort of codec it uses, how to merge it with Java sound, or anything like that.
    Any help would be much appreciated!
    If it makes any difference, I'm using Xubuntu 8.10, and I normally don't use a microphone or flashy surround-sound speakers, so I've not touched the sound system since I installed Linux.

    Ports are tricky...and by tricky, I don't mean complicated so much as a pain.
    Try using Line.Info objects instead of Port.Info objects and see if you can get any lines.

  • Java.exe in \jdk1.4.0\bin VS. java.exe in \jre\bin ?

    What is different java tools in bin directory from
    java tools in jre\bin?
    Why do we need these duplication?
    and what kinds of role jre directory do?
    If anyone give any more comments about jdk directory structure
    with the reason, it will be big help.
    Thank you..

    i guess you have installed the java development kit ( JDK ) . I you read the documentation JDK comes with development tools + java runtime environment ( JRE ) . if you have a look at this picture .It will make it more clear . so what you see in jre folder is for the runtime execution . once you have compiled the java file you you only need the jre content to run it . where as other flders contain development tools , documentation etc .

  • Capturing audio through applet using Java Sound

    hi fellows i need ur help.
    I am working on a voice project to Capture & Play the sound using java sound API instead of JMF. I can capture , play and transmit the sound through application. It works pretty fine but when i convert it to the applet, it is not working.
    I got the full system permissions and also signed the applet for Internet Explorer. Also i packed the
    classes in the signed cab.
    After doing all this i am getting the AudioFormat not supported exception. I changed the format and used all the combinations but still getting this error
